Barack Obama, our next President

We were all creeped out after that, needless to say, no reunions were held there again; plus his son looked a little on the off side as well.

There is a difference between a weapon collector and a gun collector.

No! Appears some on the right wing are on the side of the criminals if they can make a profit from selling guns, even if our children are killed as a result.
The problem is squishy lefties like you making excuses for violent criminals and allowing the mentally ill to walk the streets.

The Aurora theater killer should already have been tried and executed.

Same for the Muslim Army killer.

So your solution to this problem is to do nothing? There are millions because gun nuts want no restriction. The gun mentality of this nation is beyond insane. We have more hand guns than the next 17 nations combined, when is enough enough? We have over 3,000 children killed by guns annually, so we should do nothing about that either.
The NRA has one purpose and that is to make money, they couldn't care less about the constitution or your rights. They are heartless uncaring heathens who obstruct lie with an agenda and to gain support of the less intelligent in our society. Enter Republicans who are of the very same mold.
Obama's gun control plans are DOA in Congress.

Even Dirty Harry is opposed, will not bring a bill to the floor.

Republicans are threatening to impeach Obama over executive action on gun control, but many presidents have issued executive orders on gun control, including George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

First Larry Pratt went impeachment nuts and then yesterday, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) threatened that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he uses the power of his office to address gun control.

Stockman, who must not be familiar with the Constitution or history, claimed an executive order would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.” Stockman seems to get his news from the Daily Caller, Drudge and Fox News, because he believes,“If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist.”

President Obama hinted he might use executive action to address gun violence in his presser Monday. And then, Monday night Rep. Jackie Speier told Chris Matthews of MSNBC,“Vice President Joe Biden indicated there were some 19 areas he was able to identify that the president could take action on through executive order. He didn’t go into detail on what they might be, but suffice it to say, there will be some considered that will not require Congressional action.”

This translates in Republicanese to the demise of our Republic, also known as a Democrat not even using all of the executive power Republicans grant to their own party when they’re in power. Republicans are apparently unfamiliar with the constitutional legitimacy of using the executive office in this manner. Here are the facts:

In 1952, the Supreme Court ruled that executive orders could not make new law. Executive orders are therefore supposed to be about enforcing a current law or helping manage the enforcement of a current law. This is a matter of interpretation, and subject to argument on both sides. Whatever the President does, it will no doubt end up being challenged and argued in court (as it should be).

....But Obama could also follow George W. Bush’s example and use the “security” of the nation in order to justify just about any law he wanted to impose regarding gun safety (I’m not advocating this, but it’s worth mentioning since Republicans don’t seem to understand how their abuses of power can be used against them later).

Obama, a constitutional lawyer, appears to have used his executive power well within the law for gun regulation so far. Reuters reports,“A federal appeals court signaled on Wednesday it was prepared to uphold a regulation designed to detect the sale of semi-automatic rifles to Mexican drug cartels, one of the few gun control measures put forward so far by the Obama administration.” Republicans have also tried to defund this gun reporting regulation.

Or, perhaps she'll be inspired by the first black President who fought for womens rights; appointed 2 women to the Supreme Court, fought for gay marriage, dismantled DADT, ended two wars, implemented universal healthcare...maybe she'll even meet and marry a black man as well. Maybe your grandchildren will be mixed race, maybe then a backward person like yourself will evolve.
The future is our young people, they're the ones who die in our wars. I only hope for her that you havent' turned her into a racist rightwing hater.

Let us look at it this way. If a republican president was elected and 4 years later the unemployment rate is exactly the same (7.9%), the economy had not improved, in fact was set to get much worse, would the republicans not only nominate him/her again? Much less elect him/her? I doubt it.
